Crystal Haze

“In 1995, after two years of development, we released Crystal Haze, a gem mystery, set into chunky gold settings. The cocktail ring became a Stephen Webster icon. A ring for women that was bought by women.”- Stephen Webster

Madonna bought one for herself, quickly becoming the must-have accessory.

No-nonsense jewellery worn by strong no-nonsense women.

The Crystal Haze technique, a signature of Stephen Webster, is the concept of layering and bonding two stones using laser-cutting processes combined with materials as old as time.

“25 years later we wanted to celebrate with a new contemporary collection”
– Stephen Webster

Stephen Webster personally sources our rough materials from Tucson, Arizona or Idar-Oberstein. The selected stones are then intricately hand-cut in Germany. Never afraid to experiment, Crystal Haze, incorporates lesser-used materials such as Falcon’s Eye, Hematite, Bull’s Eye and, a variety of mesmerising Opalescent.

Crystal Haze

Oriental Spicy Floral

Bottled up excitement.

It’s oriental, spicy yet floral. It represents those hedonistic nights of youth that were euphoric and undefinable. Top notes of tuberose and sweet orange create a creamy-sweet opening preparing your senses for a rush of bright energy. This energy is harnessed through a heart of synthetic fibres and fresh cotton that kick in almost immediately. On the dry down, the base notes of imagined ironed shirt, bitter crystal musks and vanilla give a beautifully unique feeling to this perfume.

“Crystal Haze is when things kick in and the pupils widen. Your senses get a bit hazy and the excitement that comes up reminds you of your youth, back when everything was new and therefore exciting. It’s fluid and undefinable — a bright and fresh euphoric rush with a magnetic pull. You may never experience it the same way twice.”

Top: Tubereuse, sweet orange
Heart: Synthetic fibres, fresh cotton
Base: Ironed shirt, bitter crystal musks, vanilla

What others say

Review by @wearescentient
The last from the line & probably the most unique. I’ve loved exploring all of David Roelen’s creations, he’s made perfumes that are doing their own thing & they do it very well. Here’s some thoughts of sorts on Crystal Haze.
🍊🌼🌫🌬🌫🤖🍊🌼🌬🌫🍊🤖🌼🍊
Opening with a soft floral orange, fresh, almost airy, it blows like a breeze catching wafts of clean freshly washed clothes before reaching your nose. This is were tuberose sneaks in, sometimes it arrives before the orange, other times it seems to hang back. It’s beings it’s rubbery feel & round white floral aroma, adding body to the freshly washed cotton aroma. It’s clean but not soapy, maybe with the orange, jammy is a better word? But that doesn’t same clean. It’s almost like you have just been unwrapped after leaving the factory. Could this be a ‘new people smell’? It has a futuristic feel like Broken Bouquet, but this embraces the synthetic & twists it to the way it wants.

A synthetic dry feel, like a floating coating of film, seems to be formed where tuberose, musks & vanilla meet. This isn’t a gourmand vanilla, more it rounds & softens the edges of the tuberose. It’s light & breezy but there’s a bitterness too; almost that aroma you get from returned clothes after the dry cleaners, a slight chemical crystalline sharpness that the clothes retain. The tuberose & sweet orange are now one & sit under this clean fresh breeze. The sweet orange had an addictive quality, it’s very refreshing, almost sparkling with a something I can’t quite place. I keep saying futuristic, but maybe freshly unwrapped is better. It’s like the plastic has just been pulled off & I’m experiencing something new, but also familiar. Is this what the future smells like? Because I really enjoy smelling this.

Green Woody Musky

Spiritual, yet savage.

A fragrance that is green, spiritual and wild. The green element is produced using top notes of grapefruit, green leaves and cannabis replicating the spiritual environment of a Mediterranean island. The magic of the island is shared with those who visit and many think of Ibiza as a place of spiritual hedonism. The heart of herbs, hay, immortelle and palo santo or “holy-stick” replicate this spirituality, finding a way of bringing the magic back to life. Ibiza is also a deeply seductive and sensual environment, demonstrated here through the use of animalic musks, oakmoss and ambergris as the base notes.

Top: grapefruit, cannabis, green leaves
